Burying Boeung Tompun

Monks stand on the banks of Boeung Tompun and examine the lake and the city of Phnom Penh.

Boeung Tompun is a lake on the southern edge of Phnom Penh that is currently being filled in with sand to become a location for a satellite city. I spent a month in 2017 looking at daily life along the shore and in the villages that surround the lake. The goal was to create a photo essay that demonstrated what like looks like in the face of development. Visit the page to see the images and learn more about life along the lake.
